Although weight loss is probably the most important part of a diabetes reversal program, We believe that the best approach is to consider the whole person when selecting a reversal strategy. Not only should we identify ways to decrease the fat in the liver and pancreas and prevent further accumulation, but we need to consider increasing healing nutrients in the diet, getting the proper amount and the proper timing of exercise; we need to increase the amount of fiber in the diet, drink adequate water, have a good way to manage stress; we need to get plenty of sleep and avoid unnecessary snacking; we also need a strong support system, and an effective way to handle stress; we need to have a strong spiritual practice; and we need to regularly set realistic health goals and then work diligently to achieve them. This multi-dimensioned approach will give us our best hope for reversal.
